Strong winds and even stronger storms are two of the biggest dangers to your roofing because they do more than just physical damage. The water damage this weather brings can also cause significant, long-term problems to your home’s roof system.
At Tedrick’s Roofing, we answer your frequently asked questions about wind and storm damage.
Q: What Are the Signs of Storm Damage?
A: Storm and wind damage can take many forms and can range in severity. It can be as simple as a shingle that got loose or a complete penetration of the roof deck. Wind damage, in particular, can be difficult to identify. That’s why we recommend an in-depth inspection of your roofing. We can identify storm damage that you could easily miss and have it addressed as soon as possible.
Q: What Do I Do if I Need Emergency Roof Repair?
A: Never attempt to repair your home’s roof during a storm. Even if the damage is “small”, the risk is too great as the weather can turn for the worse when you least expect it. It’s better to have a roofer do emergency repairs instead. As your local roofer, we’ll dispatch our emergency team to your property so we can minimize the damage done by the storm and prevent further exposure to your home.
Q: Should I Call My Insurance Or a Roofer?
A: In many cases, you’ll want to contact your insurance company right after the storm passes. However, we recommend calling us first to do an in-depth inspection on your home. We can help you document the damage on your home for insurance purposes. These include written evaluations, estimates and photographic evidence. We’ll be glad to represent you to your insurance company as well.
